About us

Play Empire Ltd believes every young child should have the best opportunities to learn and the most effective learning is through play and investigation. We are now in an age of technology and often children can find themselves staring at a screen for hours. Play Empire want to inspire imagination and creativity in every child and develop a lifelong passion for learning which will enable them to gain the knowledge and tools to thrive in the modern world.

This passion for learning can be encouraged with learning resources that stimulate creativity and imagination.

Use of construction toys such as natural wooden building blocks can help children develop the critical thinking skills valuable to future learning experiences.

Our Educational Furniture Range is made using the finest quality wood and is designed and guaranteed to last for many years. Our classroom furniture is both versatile and functional, offering practical and efficient storage, while enhancing the different areas of learning.

We have changing and sleeping furniture for nap time and baby changing solutions, designed for comfort and flexibility. Space saving features and easy clean surfaces make these units ideal for use in an early years environment.

Small world play is so important in play. We have a selection of beautifully made small world resources and wooden blocks, with a natural finish. Designed to nurture imagination and encourage group play.

Good quality Nursery and School Furniture is important for any educational or early years setting.

There are a variety of height options to choose from to accommodate children of all ages.

Standards for learning and development and care of children from birth to 5 years are set by the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage).  The framework for these standards are the seven areas of learning: communication and language, physical development, personal, social and emotional development, literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design. The approach advocates a strategy of learning through play.

We supply the right resources to develop basic literacy and numeracy skills essential for children to progress on their educational journey and being literate is crucial in almost every aspect of adult life. Literacy is often thought of as the ability to read and write but it also includes being able to speak and listen to people around you within your community. Literacy within the Early years includes talking about books, print in the environment, early mark making and writing, as well as story time and reading.

As well as the value of literacy and sharing books, the EYFS also emphasises the importance of promoting numeracy and early mathematics throughout the learning environment. Our resources can help you develop simple maths skills in all under 5’s through play-based learning.

Children and even adults learn best and retain the most information when they engage their senses. This is why we are offer a variety of sensory equipment and furniture in our extensive sensory play range.
